Huawei's SD-WAN uCPE (universal CPE) AR650 impressed 63 professional judges from around the world and saw off competition from 6402 candidates from 54 countries to take home the top design award.

The device is usable in various deployment scenarios such as the desktop, wall, or rack. 

Huawei's product language is used for a simple design that focuses on high performance. 

The AR650, based on the ARM (industry's first) or x86 architecture, provides the SD-WAN ecosystem with an open platform that supports the on-demand acquisition of more than 10 mainstream value-added services and facilitates cost-effective SD-WAN interconnection between SMEs.

A review team consisting of over 60 known experts from numerous countries follows comprehensive evaluation criteria and procedures to select award winners, which are judged to have excellent design and be highly usable and innovative.

Huawei Enterprise Gateway Domain GM Wang Shaosen says, “Huawei's SD-WAN uCPE AR650 wins the Good Design award 2017 and iF Design award 2018, which are top design awards in the industry. 

“This indicates that Huawei's product design and quality have been recognized within the industry.”
